Take a break! Enjoy Friday noon’s student music recital

It’s called the Student Convocation Recital, and it’s set for this Friday (Nov. 20), from 12:15 to 1 p.m. or so in the University Theatre in Theatre Hall. Any and all members of the campus community are invited to stop by for the program, which will feature talented UW-Green Bay music students in a variety of solo and duo repertoire performances.  Assistant Prof. Michael Rector says potential recital-goers shouldn’t worry about arriving late or leaving early because of busy mid-day schedules — the event is by design a little informal and students appreciate the support, regardless.
